Provides an Exceptionally Smooth Shave

Philips Norelco’s best shave yet, the SensoTouch 3D gives you the ultimate shaving experience. Its GyroFlex 3D system has three dynamic parts that move independently, flexing outward, pivoting around, and tilting inward, following the natural contours of your face.

Also, the UltraTrack shaving heads catch every hair in just a few strokes with three specialized shaving tracks: slots for the long hairs, channels for the longer hairs, and holes for the shortest stubble. And the Patented Super Lift&Cut dual blade system lifts hairs to cut comfortably below skin level. This razor gets the job done without leaving any stray hairs or stubble behind.

Comfortably Shaves–Wet or Dry

With the SensoTouch 3D, you can shave any way you want. The AquaTec seal gives you the option of either a comfortable dry shave or a refreshing wet shave with shaving cream or gel. And the low-friction SkinGlide shaving surface slides smoothly along your skin for a close shave without irritation.

Optimum Control and Precision

Designed for ease of use, the SensoTouch 3D has an easy-to-hold handle with an ergonomic grip for optimum control. The convenient trimmer offers skin-friendly precision for your mustache, goatee, or side burns.

Convenient Touch Screen Display

The SensoTouch 3D has an easy-to-use touchscreen display that shows exactly how many minutes of shaving time remain before the battery needs to be recharged. You can also check whether the battery level, charging status, and the cleaning indicator at a glance. There’s even a replacement-head indicator that helps ensure every shave is a close shave.

Cordless, Travel-Friendly Design

The SensoTouch 3D charges in one hour and provides up to 60 minutes (or a maximum of 20 days) of shaving time. A display lets you know how much power remains in the lithium-ion battery and when you need to replace the blades.

The SensoTouch 3D is completely cord free, has a travel lock, and comes with a protective pouch, so you can toss it in your bag, briefcase, or suitcase when you’re on the go. Additionally, the razor features a worldwide voltage function that adjusts automatically from 100 volts to 240 volts AC, making the SensoTouch 3D ideal for international travel.

The SensoTouch 3D 1290X/40 is backed by a two-year warranty.

    Absolutely the best electric shaver I’ve used …and I’ve tried a bunch, both foil and rotary. None have shaved this close with this much comfort. There is absolutely no razor burn. Even when I tried shaving over portions of my neck several times, nothing but a close shave. Beyond that the razor has a good weight and fits comfortably in my hand. The “minutes left” indicator is very convenient. Cleaning is a snap, just pop open the heads and run them under hot water.Perhaps the biggest selling point is the 45-day money…

    Norelco’s biggest competitor is it’s past This is my second Norelco 1290x shaver from Amazon. The first one I got was defective since I was not able to turn it on after charging it. I must point out that Amazon was very prompt in replacing the defective shaver. This is what makes Amazon great in my opinion.Let me say right up front, the 1290x will never match the shave of something like a Gillette Fusion razor. The reason I want an electric shaver is because it is quick and easy to use and it gives a reasonably close…
